I don't know my top speed yet, still breaking it in.

Before the kit, 32 mph was about as high as the speedo would go,

maybe 35 down a slight hill, but that's it. On the small street I live

on, I could get it up to about 25 before running out of pavement.

Now I can get up to 30 about 2/3 of the way down the street.

I have had it up to about 40-45, and there is still some room to

go on the throttle. It feels like I should be able to hit the low to

mid 50's, a small twist of gas at 40+ tells me that it's willing

to give me a little more effort. I'm babying it for now till I get at

least 100 miles on the new motor. The bike only has 110 miles

on it.

I put in the 70cc kit, Amal carb, BiTurbo, and 27 tooth sprocket.

Lucky for me I live just a short ride from themopedjunkyard

I've mixed a little extra oil in the gas, so I know that's knocking

my power down a little. I adjusted the carb by turning out the

idle screw while turning in the mixture, till I got a smooth run

while sipping the gas. I have no idea if this is a good or bad way

to do it. The spark plug was still to new to tell if it is burning hot

enough, but I would rather burn out hot burning plugs every month

than have a cold one that lasts forever. :-)

Any hints would be very appreciated.
